NOT getting things done

So much for a real post this week. I had to make an emergency eye doctor appointment on Monday morning. You know it must be bad when you decide to take two three year olds and a five year old to the eye doctor at 9am is better than waiting for a babysitter to magically appear. I have been wearing contacts since I was twelve. I have never ever had a problem. The doctor always says not to sleep in them but they never say why, just that's its bad. Weeeeelll, I have been sleeping in them like 4 days a week the past couple weeks. Then one night I take them out and my left eye is on fire. It felt like I had a railroad spike in it. I put my contacts back in and it was tolerable. Come to find out that wearing them that much did indeed do harm. The left eye had a patch of skin rubbed off from excessive wear. Great, so now I have to wear glasses for a week. I never wear my glasses because my vision is so bad that I don't see well in them. I get super nauseous and it looks like everything is slanted downhill. Throw in three small kids and you have a week long annoying migraine. No sewing unfortunately. I'm lucky I haven't gouged my eyes out from sheer annoyance. Even typing this is driving me crazy. Come Monday ill post some goodies and about my new Featherweight.... Oh yes, I'm a new proud owner of a 1946 Singer 221-1.

Still here

I'm not dead y'all, just really behind. Since the weather warmed up, we have been going crazy trying to fix the horrid landscaping that the previous owners of the house did. We still need to pave the driveway (if you can imagine living in the NE without a paved driveway for shoveling snow for four years! Seriously!). Anyway, I have completed a couple projects that I hope to have posted by the end of the week.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with a great pic of my new baby; a Silvertone Hi Fi system I got from Craigslist for a song. It sounds amazing!
